Mini-Europe is a miniture park located in Bruparck at the foot of the Atomium in Brussels, Belgium. Mini-Europe lies at the base of the Atomium which is in the reverse scale, a model of an iron crystal lattice magnified 165 million times.
Mini-Europe has reproductions of monuments in the European Union on show, at a scale of 1:25. Roughly 80 cities and 350 buildings are represented. The monuments were chosen for the quality of their architecture or their European symbolism, including Melk Abbey of Austria, Freedom Monument of Latvia, Vilnius University campus of Lithuania, etc. Admire the detail included in each miniature model as you travel through the park. Made from resin, polyester or stone, each model is created from a cast and then painted before decorations and lighting are fitted at the park.
Cheer on the matador at the Corrida in Seville, watch the launch of Ariane V, follow the Thalys from Paris to the other end of France and marvel at many other working models, for both young and old. The best miniature park in Europe. All the monuments have been recreated down to the smallest detail. Big Ben is 4 m high. With its height of 13 m, the Eiffel tower projects above a 3-storey building! And yet all the buildings are on a scale of 1 to 25. The town hall of Brussels is decorated with 294 hand-carved statues. All against a backdrop of miniature gardens with an area of 6 acres.
Additionally, the park features a new interactive exhibition, the “Spirit of Europe”, which shares EU history through multimedia games.
